Report: Mini Maker Faire The Netherlands
Allarrrd, Masynmachien and me teamed up to host an Instructable based workshop for kids which we named Make: toys. Lieve, Monster-Marit, Rick and Sander joined the team to help out.
masynmachien also demonstrated his Instructable-plugging RC Blimp:
And help we needed: The day was a huge success with 3000 maybe more visitors and a very enthusiastic crowd. 52 Doodlebots360 were built by kids (we ran out of battery clips :-)), dozens of cartesian divers, Shampoo Dino's, Magic Fleas, Propellers on a stick and what not. In the same time, we tried to plug Instructables into the consciousness of the visitors. I was a bit shocked to find out that some people never visited the site before :-).
We used mainly scrapheap stuff to make the toys from. Some essential parts were generously sponsored by Opitech and Okaphone.
Compiling: We had a great day, as well as the visitors. Making and playing with toys while meeting lots of people. Maker Faire Forever!
